That would be true only if he had actually done change-dir %/a/ prior to the line above. If REBOL still thought the current directory were anywhere else, then the line above uses the same name but in a different directory. Thus it wouldn't be the real problem. Please see my response to Louis for what I believe to be the real source of his difficulties. -jn- ------------------------------------------------------------ Programming languages: compact, powerful, simple ...
